In March KMLF hosted an Agile workshop to stimulate ideas around forming an international knowledge society. Participant insights were collected from the march session and added into a new tool for assessing complex contexts. Some initial assessment of this information has begun to organise this into the basis of a Vision, purpose and charter for the society. This part two session takes the next steps to cocreate a foundation of the international society and put this as a proposal out into the international arena for wider engagement on starting the community. The plan is to publish the results in RealKM Magazine, which has a wide readership among knowledge professionals and then share the link into other KM forums to trigger the formation of the society.
Markus Feitz (creator of CernQuest, the tool we are using for this development project) will facilitate the overall conversation and we will instruct 5 table leaders in the use of CernQuest before the session on how to manage the system. This is an exciting development in the formation of what we believe will become a significant stage of knowledge management as a recognised discipline.
